30-Day Guarantee

Your complete satisfaction is our goal at the Capital District YMCA. Toward that end, we’re pleased to offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee when you join. If you’re unhappy with your membership, please let us know and we’ll gladly refund your money, including the joiner’s fee.

Veterans Discount

The Capital District YMCA is honored to give veterans 25% off an adult membership.

We Offer Financial Assistance

At the Capital District YMCA, we welcome individuals from all socioeconomic backgrounds and never turn you away because you cannot afford our membership, programs, or services. To help those with financial need, we have our Annual Giving Campaign scholarship program which is funded by caring members of our community. Apply online.

Joiner Fees

Our Youth Membership includes a joiner’s fee of $25. For other memberships, the joiner’s fee can be up to $100.

Community Rate Option

The Capital District YMCA is a nonprofit service-focused organization committed to the health and well-being or our members.

At the Y, in addition to our full-facility membership option, we offer a community rate. Full-facility members enjoy access to all our branches and group exercise programs. With the community rate option, you can enroll in many of our programs without having to pay a non-member fee. You simply pay the community rate for each program you take, except for group exercise classes, which are a benefit of being a full-facility member.

It’s our hope that once you try any of our programs, and become familiar with what the Y is all about, you’ll want to become a full-facility member.

Convenient Methods of Payment

Automatic Withdrawal / Safe and Convenient

Monthly payments are withdrawn from your checking or savings account, debit or credit card. The joiner’s fee and pro-rated cost for your first month of membership are due when you join. There is no contract to join, and we will stop your monthly payments (with 30 days notice) once we receive your written request.

Annual Payment Options

Dues may be paid in full when you join. We accept cash, check, or credit card. When you pay for a full year, the amount you owe includes the pro-rated cost for the current month, and the joiner’s fee.

Membership Holds

Our programs and services are reserved for our active members. When a membership is placed on hold, that membership becomes inactive and is not eligible for programs, including registration for childcare
